Astro today has taken the drape off its latest offering which comes in the form of Astro Fibre. While the new offering may look no different from the broadband combo plans that the company has offered for years, today’s announcement marked another major milestone for Astro in regard to its path of becoming an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Even though Astro has been offering broadband combo plans for years, the company has only revealed its intention to become an Internet Service Provider (ISP) last September when it signed a major deal with TM. In fact, Astro’s FAQ section has noted that Astro Fibre is a first-party service while Astro & Broadband packages are being delivered through partnerships with Maxis and TNB’s Allo.
Astro Fibre plans are quite straightforward in nature and still similar to the older Astro & Broadband in nature. In general, you choose your desired Internet speed together with your preferred Astro Packs and that becomes your Astro Fibre package.
The 50Mbps plan comes with 20Mbps upload speed while the 100Mbps, 500Mbps and 800Mbps plans provides upload speeds of 50Mbps, 100Mbps, and 200Mbps, respectively. Below is the full list of Astro Fibre packages that are available to consumers:
